Rated 1 out of 5 by from happy i didnt waste too much money... i bought this book when it was on clearance at a coles store for $5.99. im very happy that after reading it i didnt get it when it first came out. i used to be such a big fan of her writing, but since the characters made the move to florida, the writing has gone down-hill so much and the plot and storyline is all over the place. *(its almost as if she wrote it while drunk)* im not sure if i want to get her next book for fears of it having a touch of boring to it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a hot read I found this novel hard to follow, something was definitely missing. The plot, people and motives are confusing and I find they did not connect; you are left hanging at times. Too many subplots are diluting the suspense to make this a good read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A waste of time The author goes into incredible detail describing umpteen different characters, as well as locations and medical/forensic procedures, attempting to make the story more interesting, when in fact she just ends up making it tedious to read. The entire story is suddenly brought to a screaming halt, with the "surprise ending" being not much of a surprise. i took this book with me on a trip, and didn't even bother bringing it home to put in our recycle bin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the Cornwell I know This book bothered me where none of her previous ones have- all graphic horrific scenes painted - no mystery. A good job at being disconnected if that was the intent but made for a difficult disjointed read. I'll read one more of hers & if it is more of the same I'm done.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best book I've read! This was the first Patricia Cornwell book I read. I am very much into post-mortem and my neighbor recomenned I read books by this author. I found that the chapters were very short which makes for a much easy read for me. There were times I couldn't put down and other times I wanted to stop reading. At other times I got very lost. I guess that was because those were the times I was bored. I am giving another one of her books a shot. So far I can't put it down. If this is your first time reading a book from this author I suggest that your try a different title from this author.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as her other books Wow. I can't believe others thought what I thought about this book. It was like someone other than Patricia was writing this. I also thought the story was rather disjointed and didn't like how the characters are developing. Since I was really looking forward to reading this next Scarpetta book, I was really disappointed. I will likely read the next book out, hopefully it won't be disappointing and will be as good as the other Cornwell books that I really enjoyed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Kay Scarpetta Novel I enjoyed this book. In my opinion it wasn't as good as her previous ones, but still really enjoyable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Last chance Her books have really lost their quality, I agree with the other reviews (wish I'd read them before buying the book). This will be the last book of her's that I will read. Very disjointed, seemed like she was out of it while writing it...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointing... I had just finished Trace and was hoping Predator would be better, it wasn't. It's as if someone else is writing the Scarpetta novels, the current writer has no connection to the main characters. I've read all the Scarpetta novels, there used to be intrigue. I hate what she has turned Lucy into a promiscous lesbian, yeah she thinks she dying, then let her eat her gun, at least she would still have some dignity. When she introduced 12 year old Lucy's character that insecure little girl touched our hearts inspite of the the gory context. Now it seems Ms. Cornwell is turning the beautiful, talented strong Lucy her into trash, it's disgusting. Take a break Ms Cornwell, from Blow Fly to Predator, you've wasted our time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Most disappointing I have been a fan since book one, but this was terrible. Stories were all over the place and even the main subject was disjointed. It was almost like she had to write a book, so threw some words together. Hope this isn't a trend, since she's one of my favourite authors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I expected better I had always been a fan of Patricia Cornwell, but her last couple of books have not been up to her usual standards. This book gave the impression that it had been edited to garbage. The story jumps all over - and just makes no sense at times. I was sadly dissappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Predator I found this book to be very poor. It's scattered and disorganized. The writing is tangental and appears to be written by 3 different people and slapped together by the publisher. I have read all of Patricia Cornwell's books and was very disappointed by this one. I hesitate to purchase her books in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cut to pieces this book was awful - definatly not her best work. It came off as having been edited to pieces. The story jumped all over and was difficult to follow. The author would allude to something, like the reader should already know, but we hadn't been given and clues or information. I had trouble with her last book and debated not buying this one. I am sorry I did - I will not be buying any in the future. She has lost her touch.

About the Author

Patricia Cornwell is an award-winning novelist whose books have consistently appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. Cornwell was born in Florida in 1956. When she was nine years old, her mother tried to give her and her two brothers to evangelist Billy Graham and his wife to care for. For a while the children lived with missionaries since their mother was unable to care for them. Cornwell was a police reporter for The Charlotte Observer and worked in the chief medical examiner's office in Richmond, Virginia, for six years as a computer analyst. She also volunteered to ride with the police during homicide investigations. While working for the medical examiner, she began to write novels. Although the award-winning novel Postmortem was initially rejected by seven different publishers, once it was published it became the only novel ever to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony, and Macavity awards, and the French Prix du Roman d'Adventure, in one year. She is also the only woman in the United States to receive England's most prestigious crime-writing award, the Gold Dagger. Cornwell's novels are both national and international bestsellers. They have been translated into several foreign languages. Some of her novels are Body of Evidence, All That Remains, Cruel & Unusual, The Body Farm, From Potter's Field, Unnatural Exposure, Hornet's Nest, and A Time for Remembering, a biography of Ruth Bell Graham, the wife of Billy Graham.
